Abstract

Square root photocurrent dependences of nanowires on light intensity were reported in the literature without clarification of the limiting effect. In this Letter, we derived a relation excellently fitting the observed nonlinearities and, intensifying the significance of the result, we demonstrated that the fit parameters involved can be employed to determine the impurity concentration and electronic response time of nano-sized semiconductors.
